Germany is currently trending after a newspaper sent a letter to China and in it demanding a compensation of $162 billion over the destruction caused by the virus.

The later put blame on China for not acting fast enough to curb the spread and lack of openness. The virus that originated in Wuhan, China has now clocked 2 million mark of infected people globally.

In Kenya, the virus has now infected 254 people and 14 already dead with numbers projected to accelerate in the coming weeks and months.

Currently, the country is in a partial lockdown with movements restricted outside designated areas. The country is still observing the curfew and many people are either now working from home or jobless.

Tourism industry has been dealt a big blow and nearly all hotels have been shut. It’s not just that, key economic pillars have been frozen and country crawling to a halt.

With many countries now blaming China for the mess caused by the coronavirus, Narok County Senator, Ledama Olekina now wants the Chinese government held responsible and billed for it. “This COVID19 is expensive someone must pay for it! Kenya has lost over $ 1.2b in tourism revenue, $2B in diaspora remittances, the NSE has tumbled. Our entire economy has shrunk and someone must pay for it! StateHouseKenya please send a bill of $100B to China to pay!” He said.

”Can’t sleep thinking about how life has changed, thousands of SMS’s asking for rent money, food money for the day and we continue entertaining this Chinese Mess? I agree with @realDonaldTrump the Chinese must pay! No gym just getting FAT! Hapana!” He continued.
